9780470867266: The Tears of Sheba: Tales of Survival and Intrigue in Arabia

Loyalty, honour, murder, Bedouin, family feuds and survival in a setting reminiscent of the Arabian Nights Yemen in the 1960s was a society where loyalty, blood ties and honour meant everything, yet murder, forced marriages, family feuds and public beheadings were common. The Tears of Sheba is the inspiring story of Khadija Al--Salami, whose personal struggle for survival shows a deep--rooted love for her country and its people. Khadija tells of a childhood devastated by the impact of civil war, in a culture that allowed her to be married at the age of ten to an older man she had never met. Determined to escape the poverty, death and destruction that permeated her life, and with extraordinary tenacity, Khadija asked the local radio station to let her broadcast a programme for children, later using the money she earned to travel to the United States and forge a new life for herself. The Tears of Sheba is a magnificent tour--de--force, passionately told, spellbinding and uplifting -- a tale of indomitable spirit and human triumph. KHADIJA AL--SALAMI spent her childhood in Yemen. Using the money she earned as a child for her radio broadcasts she travelled to the United States to study. She graduated from Mount Vernon College in Washington and returned to Yemen to join the Yemeni TV station. She subsequently joined the Yemeni Embassy in Paris, where she is currently Press and Cultural Attache and Director of the Yemeni Information Centre in Paris.

About the Author:

Khadija al--Salami grew up in Yemen in an almost feudal environment. Her life was devastated by the impact of civil war, which mentally destroyed her father and made him unable to care for his family. Determined to escape the poverty, death and destruction around her, Khadija, at the age of 12, asked the local TV station to let her host a programme for children. She later used the money that she received for these broadcasts to travel to the United States to study. She graduated from Mount Vernon College in Washington DC and, after undertaking postgraduate study in Film production, returned to Yemen to continue working at the Yemeni TV station. She subsequently joined the Yemeni Embassy in Paris, where she is currently Press and Cultural Attache and Director of the Yemeni Information Centre. She lives in Paris with her husband, Charles Hoots.

Review:

"!An intriguing tale of loyalty, honor, murder, Bedouin family feuds!" (Publishing News, 1 August 2003) "...An enchanting tale of a determined life..." (Good Book Guide, December 2004)
